VOCARE lifts up Salvatorian core values
At Milwaukee’s Divine Savior Holy Angels High School (DSHA), VOCARE is a Salvatorian Service Program that immerses the entire senior class for two weeks of service in the local community. Service sites include central city schools, elder-care agencies, and organizations that provide training/work opportunities for persons with physical and mental disabilities. Through prayer, reflection and hands-on service, VOCARE is designed to bring a deeper understanding of Catholic social teaching than can be gained in the classroom. When DSHA seniors return to campus on January 26, they’ll share about their experiences with the entire student body.
The Latin word vocare means to draw forth or to call. It is the root of vocation – a lifelong call from God to use our gifts to honor the dignity of every person, no matter how needy. As religious sponsor of DSHA, the Sisters of the Divine Savior will share a special blessing for the Class of 2015 at the VOCARE sendoff prayer service this week. Here, we share the sendoff prayer.
